Ivone Kowalczyk is well known for her four year marriage to American film and television writer Andy Dick, which ended in their divorce in 1990 for unknown reasons; possibly including drug experimentation by Andy or allegations of sexual harassment on his part.
Early Life and Education
George Lucas was born on a walnut ranch near Modesto, California and attended Thomas Downey High School before an accident changed his plans to become a professional race car driver.
Lucas attended the University of Southern California film program and made several critically-acclaimed student films, such as Electronic Labyrinth THX 1138 4EB which won first prize at the National Student Film Festival. As part of his coursework he observed film classes as Finian’s Rainbow was shooting nearby; this gave him insight into his future career path.
At this point, Lucas met Haskell Wexler, a cinematographer and one of his mentors. Wexler would go on to shoot several of Lucas’ films, and later was credited by him with encouraging him towards becoming a director and founding American Zoetrope studio.
Lucas Kowalczyk may not be an easily recognized name, but her story with American comedian, actor, musician, television and film producer Andy Dick has thrust her into the public eye. Their marriage lasted four years before life’s divergent currents separated them.
At present, Kowalczyk remains shrouded in mystery in terms of both her professional pursuits and private life. Since her divorce from Dick, she has not been seen publicly or on social media and there is no indication she plans on returning to public attention anytime soon.
